And this helps how?

Makes it so the impact is on the chassis of the car

It just seems that designing the car in such a way that the impact zones can actually be impacted without sophisticated proximity sensors would be a more elegant approach

I dont get what you are suggesting. This seems to be a pretty elegant solution already as it doesnt require anything added to the car but a piece of code if the car already has 360 degree parking cameras and air suspension.
